Vol. 27 // OCTOBER NEWSLETTER

It's October and we're planning for some of the biggest volunteer and employee engagement days of the year. In this newsletter, we'll share about the social impact days you should be keeping an eye on, the WeHero 100, new WeHero experiences, new Learn videos, and more!

Let's dive in

1 // The Time Is Now

The time to plan your end-of-year volunteer and employee engagement events is NOW. Planning and promoting events earlier results in increased participation, increased engagement, and more IMPACT!

Social impact days to have on your radar!

1. October is Blindness Awareness Month and according to the World Health Organization, there are 285 million people who are visually impaired worldwide, 39 million of whom are completely blind. Join us in supporting through a Be My Eyes volunteer experience!

2. Veterans Day is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, honoring military veterans of the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I.

3. Giving Tuesday is a global movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
